Bereavement Authority to Act form

Hello,

I am filling out the bereavement paperwork as my husband has died.
It says I need a Statutory Declaration to say that I have authority to Act on his behalf. Do you have a certain form for me to get certified for this?
Thanks you

Its listed here.

No need for a Stat Dec. You could just get the person administering the will to write a letter stating you have authority.

Hi,

There is no will or executor. I am his next of kin

Then a Stat Dec it must be. You can download and print it out here.

Declare you are "A representative (next of kin) who can act on behalf of deceased husband."

You'll need to take it to a chemist or other authorised person to get it validated.
